Local dropout rate improves


School system
wants to better
graduation rates
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
' The Okeechobee County
school system lags behind the
statewide average in dropout and
graduation rates.
However, the school system is
working to improve those figures


and is making plans for expan-
sion to combat population
growth and accommodate the
classroom size amendment.
Okeechobee High School's
graduation rate for the 2003-04
school year was 60.5 percent, a
drop from 67.3 percent the previ-
ous year. At this point, Lee Dixon,
assistant superintendent of
schools, said school officials
have no explanation for the sig-
nificant drop. He said it might
just be a one-time thing.
Figures for the current year


will show if there is a pattern or
trend, he said. Mr. Dixon added
that they would just have to work
with individual students.
The statewide average gradu-
ation percentage rate for the
same year was 71.6. The
statewide averages have been
improving over the last six school
years.
However, during that same
period, Okeechobee's gradua-
tion rate started out ahead of the
state average but gradually fell
behind.


Looking at surrounding coun-
ties, Glades County had a 54.6
percent graduation rate; Hardee
County had a 72.2 percent rate;
and, 69.9 percent of Hendry
County seniors graduated.
Turning to the dropout rate,
Okeechobee's 2003-04 dropout
rate was 4.7 percent an
improvement over 5.4 from the
previous year.
Glades County looked slightly
better with a 4.4 percent dropout
rate, while Hardee County had a
5.8 percent rate and Hendry


County's dropout rate was 3.4
percent.
The statewide average
dropout rate for 2003-04 was 2.9
percent.
One problem contributing to
lower graduation and higher
dropout rates, according to Mr.
Dixon, is the large percentage of
Spanish speaking students in
Okeechobee schools. To help
Spanish-speaking students per-
form better, a special tutoring

Sewer plant



tops today's



OUA agenda


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The board of directors of the
Okeechobee Utility Authority
(OUA) will be having a special
meeting this morning at 10 a.m.
to discuss items concerned with
the expansion of the wastewater
treatment plant.
With the expansion of the
plant, there will be an increase in
the amount of treated effluent
that must be disposed of in some
manner. Two methods have
been proposed arid will'be dis-
cussed at length today.
A representative of Applied
Technology & Management is


scheduled to be on hand to
explain their report on the feasi-
bility of a created wetland with
surface water discharge into Tay-
lor Creek. Of major concern with
this method is the amount of
phosphorous that will flow into
the creek, and then on to Lake
Okeechobee.
The other method proposed
is deep well injection. A repre-
sentative of Andreyev Engineer-
ing, Inc. is scheduled to be pres-
ent at the meeting to discuss that
option. A summary of their find-
ings to date and preliminary rec-
ommendations regarding the

Business and government leaders gathered at South Florida Water Management Dis-
trict's Okeechobee service center for an open house to meet the new executive direc-
tor, Carol Wehle (left). Ms Wehle said she plans no major changes. Lake Okeechobee
and Everglades restoration are her two huge priorities. One of her personal goals is to
maintain good public relations with the local governments. She feels this is critical to
smooth SFWMD operations. Ms. Wehle said that with all the rainfall recently, water stor-
age would be big issue.

program is held in the afternoons
at the middle schools. High
school students, who are dis-
missed from class earlier than the
middle school students, are
bused to this program and then
taken home with the middle
schools students.
Another method used by the
high school to improve the gradu-
ation rate is the credit retrieval
program whereby students use
the computer lab and earn credits
at their own pace.


This program has been offered
for six or seven years during the
school day. However, students are
limited in the amount of time they
have during the day for extra
study. So this last school year the
a credit retrieval program has also
been offered at night. This pro-
gram helps students who are a
few credits short of graduating.
To encourage those dropouts
who lack a few courses or have a
low grade point average, there is
the dropout retrieval program that
is offered at night at New Endeav-
or High School. This program
allows students to earn a tradi-
tional high school diploma.
In addition, Indian River Com-
* munity College (IRCC) offers a
program to help dropouts receive
their GED. Unfortunately,
dropouts who earn a GED after
reaching 19 years of age do not


count toward the graduation rate.
Mr. Dixon said that the gradua-
tion rate in Okeechobee is higher
than 60 percent because many
people have gotten their GEDs
after high school, and are a bit
older such as in their 20s and 30s.
He cited three major reasons
for dropouts students having to
work, teenage pregnancies and
the inability to speak fluent Eng-
lish.
Mr. Dixon said that motivation
is the major factor that deter-
mines if a student will graduate,
while some students have other
priorities than graduation.
In an effort to provide class-
room space to keep ahead of pro-
jected growth and the classroom
size amendment, school officials
are looking at projected atten-
dance figures five years down the
road in order to plan for class-
room facilities.
The class size reduction
amendment, which went into
effect during the 2003-04 school
year, calls for phased-in class-
room limits with the goals that by
the 2010-11 school year, Pre-K
through third grade would have
18 students per classroom; grades
four through eight would have 22
students per classroom; and
grades nine through 12 would
have 25 students per classroom.
Currently, most Okeechobee
schools are near capacity. Okee-
chobee High School, however,
has the space to take a few more
students.
For planning purposes, school


officials use a Florida Department
of Education generated report
based on projected enrollment
five years into the future. Unfortu-
nately, the present report does not
take into consideration the accel-
erated growth rate for Okee-
chobee.
The school system enrollment
as of May 10 was 7,001. The
report projects an enrollment of
7,124 for the 2009-10 school year.
Based on those outdated fig-
ures the report predicts that in five
years South Elementary School
will need 12 more classrooms, as
will Seminole Elementary School.
The report goes on to state that
based on a total system enroll-
ment of 7,124, Osceola Middle
School will need eight more class-
rooms in five years
New projected attendance fig-
ures are expected next month.
Mr. Dixon said that these state
reports rely too much on histori-
cal data rather than current
events. In reality, the school sys-
tem expects to grow 150 to 200
students a year and have an
enrollment of 7,600 in five years.
Mr. Dixon said that more accu-
rate enrollment projections might
call for the construction of a new
school in five years.
He predicted that the county's
population will grow because of
an influx of people from Martin
and Palm Beach counties.
"We won't really know until it
happens," he added.

Besides the engineering aspects
of the expansion project, the board
r _will also discuss funding options
S for the plant expansion, The board
"" will consider a summary of the pro-
jected costs of construction, pro-

One question to be discussed is
- the possibility of receiving and

Debris
I read with interest about the trash and debris pick up. I
thought the original contract, when we started paying for this
with our taxes, was that it stated everyone would have trash and
brush pick-up on a weekly basis. I was just wondering if the con-
tract with the county and Waste Management had changed and
that is the reason you now have to call for debris pick-up when it
was supposed to be done on a weekly basis. Perhaps one of
your reporters can check into this and find out exactly what the
contract between the county and Waste Management is.
(Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. We contacted Waste Man-
agement and were told the contract has not changed. The com-
pany is still dealing with quite a bit of storm debris and are still
not back to their normal schedule. If you have debris, place it by
the road in front of your property and it will be noted by the
driver when your trash is picked up. It will then be placed on a
list that debris is to be picked up at your address. You can also
call Waste Management to have your debris picked up, but they
really prefer that you don't.)

Letter to the Editor


Drainage problem
I know a lot of areas are having
problems with standing water at
this time.
We bought property in Four
Seasons back in 1989 and we have
only seen the ditches cleaned once
in that time. And I know people
throw a lot of junk in those ditches
that should not be there, but that is
every place you go.
I called both the commissioner
for our area and the road depart-
ment on Monday after the rains we
had. Our commissioner said he
would look into the problem we
are having. I called him Tuesday
and he said he was out there Mon-
day and Tuesday trying to check
things out.
The road department told me
Monday they would send someone
out. I called the road department
Tuesday, and they said the ditches
had to be cleaned and they were
working on that.
I was also told that the engi-
neers say that the county culverts
are doing what they are supposed
to do. Well, I for one think there
might be a problem at 60th Avenue
and 64th Avenue, where the water
is supposed to cross under the
road.
If new culverts were installed
after the storms, why weren't cul-
verts put in at 64th and 60th
Avenues?
The other problem is N.E. Fifth
Street and 70th Avenue. There is a
ditch/creek that goes through my
son's property, as it has been called
over the past years. Now I have
been told it could be an old agricul-


ture ditch that a previous owner
had dug and left.
One of the county employees
said yesterday it is not a county
easement so they do not have to
clean it. Yet, they (the county)
came in and put a 36-inch culvert
right at the mouth of this ditch to
route water that cannot go any-
where because the other end of
this ditch is filled in. So, where does
the water go? All over!
I was told today before anything
is done to the ditch it had better be
checked out.
Well, why wasn't this done by
the county or someone before they
put a new culvert in a ditch that had
been filled-in a little ways down
from where the water was being
routed?
We the residents of Four Sea-
sons would like some answers,
and some kind of solution to this
problem. We all pay property taxes
in hopes that our dollars are work-
ing for us.
Our main concern is all these
ditches are full of animal waste and
maybe human waste, since we all
have septic systems in this area.
Just look and see how many young
children are slipping away to have
fun in their new-found swimming
holes.
Just take a drive out to our area
and see for yourselves. We have
people who have purchased prop-
erty this year and built new homes,
and now they can't get in to their
homes without wading through
water.
And, this is just the start of the
rainy season.
